Jiusi Cultural and Creative Park


Jiusi Cultural and Creative Park is located on the west side of Xishiku Street and neighbors the Xishiku Church to the west. The linear distance between the park and eastern Beihai Park is only 500 meters and its linear distance to the northwest turret of Forbidden City is 1000 meters, making it the so far nearest cultural and creative park to the Beijing central area. The park originally was a Sino-Germany vocational school with large open spaces used as practical workshops and classrooms, which are of various utilization potentials. 

 
The site area is about 4,800 sqm and floor area is approximately 8,000 sqm. After renovation, the park is consist of five individual buildings. In the space layout, it offers more flexibilities for the tenants thus their diversified needs for rooms will be well fulfilled. The delightful landscape in the park is in perfect harmony with the indoor office environment. To create a pleasant scenery and lighten the traditional dull office, the building roofs are converted into gardens, presenting a layout where every room has easy access to the beautiful scenery and meanwhile providing the tenants with more available public areas. As for handling the relationship between the park and the city, with its traffic circulation design, the park incorporates the shops of the Xishiku Street into its area, forming a semi-open commercial pedestrian area and stimulating the vitality of the park. During redesign of the building façades, the old disorderly facades are replaced with a new concise sense of order. In compare with the neighboring Xishiku Church, a distinct contrast emerges between the simple and complicated, modern and classical.
 
After renovation, the Jiusi Cultural and Creative Park has achieved the remarkable renewal of buildings in old urban district and provided an excellent work and demonstration place for high-end cultural and creative enterprises. Facing Beihai Park in the east and neighboring Xishiku Church in the west, the Jiusi Cultural and Creative Park has become a cluster area for cultural and creative enterprises in Beijing core area.
